Let's be honest: As important as it is to give your cat a comfortable place to sleep, most cat beds aren't fun to look at—and very few of the options on the market actually enhance the aesthetic of your home, whether you prefer traditional, modern, or coastal design schemes.

But we're big believers in melding form and function—which is why we teamed up with several pet experts to put together this collection of modern cat beds that your favorite feline will love. "Aesthetically speaking, cat beds should be designed to fit into the modern home," affirms Damian Hall, senior marketing manager at Catit. "These days, pet parents are looking for cat furniture with a sleek design that looks similar to human furniture."

Along with being stylish, it's essential to find a cat bed that allows your pet to relax enough to fall asleep. "Cats often feel safest when sleeping in an enclosed cubby-like space where they feel both comfortable and safe," Hall says. "Overall, well-designed cat furniture meets cats' instinctual needs, but does not come at the expense of your personal design aesthetic."

Something versatile without too many bells and whistles is ideal for both you and your feline. "Avoid things that cats can choke on, like zippers or strings, and beds that are easily cleanable are a bonus," says Jackson Cunningham, founder of Tuft + Paw. Looking for a reliable cat bed that you won't mind showing off in plain sight? These modern cat beds will be beloved by both you and your furry companion.
